A must-see attraction for all holidays to Vienna is Schönbrunn Palace, the summer residence of the Habsburg family. The Habsburg monarchy ruled Austria, Hungary and parts of the surrounding countries for over 600 years and Schönbrunn serves as a window into their lavish lifestyles. The grounds are home to lush gardens, impressive sculptures and even some fake Roman Ruins, built by Ferdinand Hetzendorf von Hohenberg in 1778. On our holidays to Vienna, we’ll get to explore this beautifully ornate palace as part of a guided, full day city tour.
Another former royal residence to visit is the Hofburg, which was originally the official seat of the Habsburg Empire. Once an impressive fortress with a moat and drawbridge, today the palace is home to a mix of museums and ministries.
